Lilac: We had our Lilac formulated to make it the most realistic that we could find. This lilac really sticks in CP soap, unlike most lilac scents. It is a magnificent light floral scent that is sure to prove a best seller for you.Quickly thickens liquid soap clouds then finishes honey colored.
Performance in Cold Process Soap: Like most florals, this fragrance does accelerate trace. It discolors to a honey tan color.

Reply from Bramble Berry Hi Michelle! I'm so glad you love our Lilac Fragrance Oil and it brings back such good memories! There are two kinds of phthalates, there are bad phthalates, 7 of which are classified as CMR's (carcinogenic, mutagenic or reproductive toxicants). These kinds of phthalates have never been used in the fragrance industry. Though there is another phthalate, Diethyl Phthalate which can be called the "good phthalate," which is the kind of phthalate found in fragrances. It has been extensively tested and has been found to be "not harmful," "not a CMR," "not a skin sensitizer," "not a skin irritant" and "not harmful to the environment." I will email you personally to discuss this further!
Reply from Bramble BerryHi Munimula! I'm sorry this fragrance wasn't your favorite. In our tests and recipes, this fragrance did accelerate. To help slow this down, take 1 oz. (basically equal amounts of fragrance oil to fixed oil) liquid oil out of your recipe and heat it up to 100 degrees. Then, add your fragrance into this oil. This simply dilutes the fragrance oil’s initial acceleration. You can also add the oil/fragrance mixture earlier than usual. Rather than adding the fragrance at a thick trace, you can add it at the first sign of thin trace. Always hand stir the fragrance/oil mixture in with a fork/ladle and never, ever use a hand blender for problem oils. Lastly, raise your temperatures to about 110 to 115 degrees. This will help to keep your mixture more liquid than at a lower temperature. If it starts to rice, you can stick blend until it's smooth. Read more in the Soap Behaving Badly post. You can also use that acceleration to create a great design! See how in the Layered Lilac Loofah Cold Process Tutorial. I'll be emailing you personally to talk more!

Several months ago, I received a lovely email from Patti Flynn. Patti participated in the “Crazy Sexy Vegan Cleanse,” that I coordinated in 2012, which involved no meat, sugar, dairy, gluten, alcohol or coffee. During this cleanse, Patti discovered lacto-fermentation of vegetables. This discovery soon developed into a hobby, which has now turned into a […]
